EIS is needed for proposed Elbow Lake weir removal
October 24, 2019
ELBOW LAKE - This letter is a response to the Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) of the proposed removal and remediation of Elbow Lake Dam. The project title itself is a contradiction to the proposal because the title refers to the name of what the state wants to eliminate, Elbow Lake.
I have had my State Lease on Elbow Lake since 1998. I acquired it from my friend Anna Lukens who had the lease since leases were created at Elbow Lake in the mid 1950’s. It was called Elbow Lake, with emphasis on the word “Lake” because it had been a lake since the early 1900’s.
